8 (e): “customary law rights” means that the contractor`s primary obligation is to perform the construction work in a “good and appropriate” manner. 4 (b): If the employer does not pay on time, the contractor may suspend the execution of the work. If the agreement does not provide for “progress payments”, this is irrelevant. 11: If there is a dispute, it must be referred to arbitration, but see 12 (d) below.12 (a): the “completion date” is the date on which the contractor informs the employer that the work is completed or the date on which the employer agrees to it be completed if earlier; 9 (b): This generally varies so that the contractor can assign all the work to subcontractors. The work has become very complex and most of the work is now carried out by specialized subcontractors who each deal with a different element of the work. 12 (b) (c) (d) (e): if the employer does not agree that the work should be completed and that the unfinished work should not be of a minor nature, the contractor shall complete the work in progress and inform the employer again in accordance with point 12(a). If the parties are unable to agree on whether the arrears are minor in nature, this matter may be referred to an independent expert. When the non-complete goods are agreed or considered minor, the employer is obliged to pay the balance due, provided that the contractor undertakes to settle the delinquent goods within a reasonable time. For the avoidance of doubt, the Panel confirms that the use of the words “conditions of sale and/or construction” in the documentation of the certificate of ownership should mean that the conditions of sale relating to the purchase of second-hand property are necessary and that the conditions of sale and the terms of the construction contract are necessary for the purchase of a newly constructed building or immovable property during construction. The history of building control in Ireland does not inspire confidence. Outside urban areas, there were no building rules and in urban areas there were only building laws, some of which were Victorian in age. A national system of building rules was finally put in place after the Stardust fire. While the construction rules were put in place in 1990, the conformity demonstration system proved to be profoundly flawed on the basis of post-facto visual checks, and a new “construction management control” scheme was put in place.
This requires abrading in different phases of construction and is certainly an improvement and seems to have some “teeth”, time will show if it is robust and sufficient. You might think that buying a “new” house or apartment is like buying a new washing machine or car and the seller hands over a finished product in exchange for the agreed price, but that`s not (legally) what happens. A new house or apartment consists of two elements, the physical components that are built (floor, walls, roof, etc.) and the countryside (or sometimes in the case of an airspace apartment) where the building is located (or for an apartment a part of the building). . . .
